I have a Little who is learning her shapes. She likes boats. She likes sandwiches that stick together. You guessed it, she is preschool age. SO, I created this healthy and fun snack just for her! PS: She is allergic to nuts ~ this is allergy friendly!

shape sailboat snackWe also just happened to be doing a unit on water, ocean life, and respecting natural habitats so this snack fit in nicely with our summer home learning lessons! We went to the pier and watched boats dock. We watched the seals play at the cove. We discussed safe boating practices that can protect marine life. By the time we came home, she was definitely ready for a snack. Do I always match our snacks to our learning? Not always, but when I do, they sure remember it ~ and EAT it! This healthy, educational snack was no exception! She is also studying shapes in her review unit. I tied them both together and we set sail!

  1. I was curious if you ever thought of changing
    the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love
    what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
